Alnuweiri to give Al Maerifa talk on autonomous intelligent Internet

Dr. Hussein Alnuweiri, professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program, will give the fourth talk in the virtual Al Maerifa Public Seminar Series 23 April from 12 to 1 p.m.

Alnuweiri's talk is titled "Rise of the Autonomous Intelligent Internet." In the span of four decades, the Internet became the single most pervasive technology used by everyone in the world, and all the time. While initially designed as an information internetwork, the Internet quickly evolved into a worldwide web in which a multitude of devices and platforms contribute smart services to rich digital environments. Augmented reality, digital twin technologies, autonomous vehicles, and AI-based services, are all but examples of the evolution towards an Internet that can sense, feel, think, and interact with humans. This talk will present a quick journey into how AI and the Internet of smart things will shape the future of our world.

Alnuweiri is a senior member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and served previously as a Canadian delegated to the ISO where he contributed to the MPEG4 video streaming standard. His current research interests include the Internet of smart things, fog/edge computing, machine learning, and autonomous systems. He authored many conference and journal papers in these fields. He is also an inventor with four issued U.S. patents. His industrial partnerships have been long-standing with several large companies around the world.

The seminar will be delivered via Zoom in English. Register and
